Lake of Fierza,
The artificial lake of Fierza was created on the banks of the Drin river back in 1978, in order to serve the hydropower dam of Fierza. The lake also serves as a junction connecting citizens of Kukes, Tropoja, Has and Puka. The amazing landscape at all seasons and times of the year, has to be on your must-see list while in Kukes. An interesting fact about the Fierza Lake is the fact that underneath the water, lies the old city of Kukes, which was flooded because of the construction of the dam and had to be rebuilt on the hills nearby.
Amid the alpine climate, horseback riding, traditional food and customs, but also its natural beauties like the mountains, the lake, the canyons, its forests and many valleys, Kukes has just started to gain momentum and become a favorite amongst tourists, so don’t miss out on this beautiful northern city that has a great potential to become a regional center of tourism for all nature and adventure lovers.
